Jamie Redford, of ACEs Connection staff,
an science marketing firm, dies at age 58. ...

October 13, 2020

This sad news was posted on the KPJR Films FB page Saturday afternoon:

It is with broken hearts and great sadness that we share the passing of our dear friend and colleague, Jamie Redford. Jamie was a light in this world who used his time and talent to raise social issues to the forefront through world class documentary filmmaking. He provided voice to those underserved and overlooked and amplified solutions that will provide hope to many for generations to come. Those of us who worked with Jamie, know that it was an honor - a once in a lifetime opportunity - to experience his ability to create media that had a global impact and inspired change. We will forever be grateful for Jamie’s ability to lead, to create, to care with kindness, fairness and an authentic style that embodied trust and confidence. Jamie was very special to us at KPJR Films and at this time we ask that you keep Jamie and his family in your thoughts and prayers and honor his life by continuing to impact the world with positive energy and hopefulness.

Redford died on Friday, Oct. 16, 2020. His wife of 32 years, Kyle Redford, told of his passing in a message on Twitter: Jamie died today. We’re heartbroken. He lived a beautiful, impactful life & was loved by many. He will be deeply missed. As his wife of 32 yrs, I’m most grateful for the two spectacular children we raised together. I don’t know what we would’ve done w/o them over the past 2yrs.

Redford and co-producer Karen Pritzker just released KPJR Films' latest documentary, "Playing for Keeps: The Upside of Downtime”, about the importance of play in the lives of adults. It debuted at the Mill Valley Film Festival on Oct. 9.

Redford was an amazing man who brought light and joy into the lives of countless numbers of people across the world. With Paper Tigers and Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope, he made an incredible impact in helping people understand why we humans behave the way we do, and how we can solve our most intractable problems by learning about and integrating the science of childhood adversity into our lives and work.

...He also directed and produced Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution for HBO, Toxic Hot Seat, The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia, Mann v. Ford and The Kindness of Strangers. He was also co-founder and chairman of the Redford Center, whose mission, according to the center's website, is to "use the power of positive stories to effect real change," which he did in a most remarkable way.

Our deepest condolences go out to his family and the friends who loved him.

Our hearts are also broken. He left this world too soon.
